Humour: spamming the API

I'm revamping the tags system in Jojo CMS this weekend, as we need a user interface that can scale well as more and more tags are added to sites (potentially thousands of tags).

The Google Sandbox is real!

We already know that the Google sandbox exists - Google has confirmed that it does exist. While looking through some ranking graphs the other day, I found some graphs which I think explain the sandbox concept very well. I forget where Google confirmed this, but probably via Matt Cutts.
